    The USDA attempts to promote balance in nutrition. Currently, if you visit choosemyplate.gov you will see a multi-color logo that encourages portions among fruits, vegetables, grains, protein, and dairy (note the absence of chocolate, coffee, and candy – bummer). Variety among these food groups is for our health. A healthy body requires a comprehensive approach.

    You’ve probably been in a situation before where you’ve been asked by a friend or coworker about your church. And more likely than not, one of the questions that might have accompanied such a conversation would have been one like this: “What sorts of things are you doing in the church?”

    Drew’s sermon on vocation as part of the Reformed and Reforming series got me thinking. I of course thought about the calling I have in my “day job.” But it also made me think about my calling as an elder. I’ve been an elder for a while now. But I still run into situations where this vocation of eldering still doesn’t feel like it fits.

    Recently in my Hebrew Exegesis course, I’ve been studying the story of Gideon in Judges 6-8. The section starts off introducing Midian, a scary sounding state that is overpowering Israel. In Judges 6:12-24 we are introduced to Gideon. The angel of the Lord appears to him, calls him a man of valor, and tells him to go and save Israel from the hand of Midian. How does Gideon, this supposed man of valor, respond? He’s afraid and weak.
